zonal council

If zonal council is made by state reorganization act 1956 then how Can it be extra legal body.


  • They are statutory bodies because they have been created by a statute (act) of the Parliament. They are extra-constitutinal bodies, because the Constitution has no mandate regarding their formation.

    Where did u read they are extra-legal? They are legal because they are statutory.

    You are confusing between the terms extra-constitutinal and extra-legal.
